sup][24],[36] Our chemotaxis assay revealed that in the presence of rolipram CCL3-induced T-cell migration was impaired, indicating that PDE4 inhibitors exert their anti-inflammatory effects by attenuating both the CCL3 production and its receptor responses in target cells.

HIES is a rare multisystem primary immunodeficiency disorder in which there is an abnormal chemotaxis of leucocytes often accompanied by abnormalities of connective tissues, dentition and skeleton.
Mechanisms were not investigated in the current study, but are hypothesised to include reduced generation of pro-inflammatory cytokines as well as decreased NF-[kappa]B signalling, decreased leukocyte chemotaxis and decreased T cell reactivity.
This linear array forms a flowable, biocompatible and bioactive structural matrix that can promote chemotaxis, cellular adhesion, migration and proliferation to stimulate tissue formation.
